When I was young I used to wait on master handing him his plate

C                                                                    D7                         G
I brought his bottle when he was dry and brushed away the blue tail fly

G                                   D7                                                                    G
Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care

G                                 C                                                    D7       G
Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care ole master’s gone away


He used to ride each afternoon I used to follow with a hickory broom

The pony kicked his legs up high when bitten by the blue tail fly…….

CHORUS
The pony jump, he run, he pitch,    he threw my master in a ditch

My master died and who’ll deny the blame was on the blue tail fly

CHORUS
Ole master’s dead and gone to rest, they say it happened for the best

I won’t forget till I die , Ole massa and the blue tail fly
